ghost towns and abandoned places

Abandoned ghost towns are a whole new level of adventure fun

Now for a little different kind of adventure. There is something thrilling about finding lost or abandoned places, so why not visit a ghost town or two next time you are on a trip? These places may not even be on the map anymore, and you can’t get much more remote than that. Just remember that abandoned places don’t maintain a lot of resources so directions or websites may be sketchy.
